02 July 2008 Happy Birthday Bronwen
I’ve come to rely on this tool but also many other aspects of social media. It hasn’t just given me more channels to communicate but has now become a main source of information and entertainment.
The way I contact people and stay in touch with them has changed with Facebook. The way I watch my favourite television shows has changed with YouTube, which has also opened up infinite hours of UGC. Similarly, the radio is streamed via podcasts. The daily read of a newspaper has changed with my RSS Subscriptions where I choose what I want to read.
Interestingly, these changes are all free. No wonder Generation Y is so reliant on social media.
